Kudzu Eating Goats Make New York Times

Chattanooga (WVLT) - An East Tennessee oddity makes national news.

We've reported the story before, but on Tuesday it appeared in the New York Times.

A story about the goats eating kudzu on the side of I – 75, complete with a picture.

The US Forest Service has called it "the vine that ate the south", growing about a foot a day.

Goats, who were once escorted by donkeys and now llamas for protection, are busy clearing the entrance to the McCallie Tunnel.
